07:00 0 Comments
In an exclusive interview with NET.  The Comedian/Actor/Compere talks about marriage, career and his upcoming album. Below are all the exclusives...

What you have been up to lately?
I have been working on a new project, helping the working class live longer than expected. We all know that the life expectancy for a Third World country like Nigeria is 45 years. So, I decided to give back to the society by organizing this comedy show once every week at RODIZZIO Bar and Lounge to help improve the health of the working class and reduce the stress associated with the hustle and bustle of Lagos life.

That is interesting. So when did you start this project?
It started precisely on the May 29, 2013. Like I said before, it is my own way of giving back to the society.
Most of  your colleagues are getting married and quitting bachelorhood.

When are you planning to get married and who is the lucky lady?
(Laughs)…Well I will be getting married soon and please don’t ask me about her. Allow her to rest.  Any way she is a beautiful, intelligent and a wonderful woman, that’s the much I’m willing to tell about her but very soon I will be leaving bachelorhood. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed, soon ‘Fine boy’ will introduce ‘Mrs Fine boy’ to the world. Continue...

Southern African country Angola reportedly bans Islam religion

01:00 0 Comments
To me i think there should be freedom of religion to every citizen of a country. Well reports are to be believed then the Southern African country has become the first country in the world to ban the Islamic religion. According to multiple reports coming from Angola, Mosques in the country have been closed down and some even destroyed.

The Guardian reports that on November 22, the Angolan Minister of Culture Rosa Cruz e Silva said that “the process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights and so their mosques would be closed until further notice.”

Does a religion need to be legalized? The minister also said that the closing of mosques was done in a move to stop so-called 'illegal religious sects.' Under new laws in Angola, many religious sects have suddenly become criminal.

Yesterday November 24, Angola President José Eduardo dos Santos said that the country is working toward putting an end to Islamic influence in Angola once and for all while the Governor of Luanda, Bento Bento, said that “radical” Muslims are not welcome in the country and that the Angolan government will not be legalizing mosques or other places of worship for Muslims.

He confessed to the murder on November 14th after he was arrested by police who confronted him with numerous pieces of incriminating evidence collected in the hours immediately following the crime.

 That incident just keep me hating this guy. Iyanya was bounced at Davido’s 21st birthday party which held at Pavada Lounge Thursday night.

Witnesses said, most people who weren’t invited where not allowed to get in, and if you must, you must call one of the HKN group members, who will come out and take you in.

Most people who felt they should be in, called Kamal, a member of Davido’s group who was always in and out taking guests in. But when Iyanya got to the entrance, the bouncers said he couldn’t get it.

People around told them it was Iyanya, but the bouncers still refused and said if he must get in, he should call Davido or Kamal. Iyanya tried making a call, but no one picked, he got angry nodding his head as he left. A lot of people didn’t understand what was going on and it soon became a hot topic among guests at the party. Now, this is an inside gist and it’s so true.

Comedian, Gbenga  Adeyinka,  was in his elements and he was the person who caused Peter to perform for that amount.

Adeyinka reminded the audience how the twin brothers came to Lagos in a night bus and how they used to perform for N7, 500. He then offered Peter N8, 000 and asked him to perform.

Adeyinka said, “Back then when P-square came to Lagos, they were paid N7, 500 to perform and both of them would not only sing but also break dance and sweat profusely for N7, 500. This is N8, 000, Peter should come and perform for us. He should dance harder because the N7, 500 was for the two of them but this N8, 000 is just for Peter.”

The groom didn’t hesitate, he took up the challenge and he did it well to the amazement of the crowd that attended his wedding.

Forgetting that he just arrived from Ghana where he went for a show, the singer performed his Personally hit track and his dancers even joined him on the stage. Continue...

Stakeholders including the All Progressives Congress and governorship candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party had called for outright cancellation on the grounds that the election was not credible, free and fair. In addition, APC wrote a petition to INEC stating reasons why the election must be cancelled.

But addressing journalists in Abuja on Friday, INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, said there were no substantial evidences that would warrant outright cancellation of the governorship election.

He however admitted that the election did not satisfy the commission’s intention and the expectations of Nigerians.

He said, “I have looked at the petition by APC and have asked a team to also look at it; all the allegations contained there were a repetition made by the APC candidate (Chris Ngige) to which we had replied. Continue...
